Colonials Hold Off Maryland, 10-9
GW Earns Third Straight Win Over Terrapins
March 31, 2005
COLLEGE PARK, MD - The GW women's water polo team (10-8, 3-2 CWPA) erased a 5-4 halftime deficit and held on to defeat CWPA Southern Division rival Maryland (6-13, 1-4 CWPA), 10-9, on Wednesday, March 30. It was the third time this season the Colonials have downed the Terrapins.
"Our kids fought hard, especially after falling behind at halftime," GW head coach Scott Reed said. "We did a great job dealing with their offensive pressure to hold them off in the third and fourth quarters."
The Colonials led 3-2 after the first period and owned a 4-2 margin in the second quarter before the Terps notched three unanswered goals to take a 5-4 edge at the half. The match was tied at seven after three quarters of play, but GW tallied three of the game's next four goals to nab a 10-8 advantage. Maryland fought back, converting a penalty shot opportunity with 48 seconds to go in the match, but GW kept the Terps off the scoreboard in the final seconds to secure the victory.
The Colonials are seeded eighth for the upcoming ECAC Championship, which will take place on April 2-3 in Lewisburg, PA. GW will meet top-seeded Hartwick in the opening round of the event on April 2 at 9:00 a.m.
